Can a collection acgency collection on a debt that has been removed from my credit report?
I have disputed an old credit card charge from 1998 on my credit report and it has been removed by the credit report agencies. Recently, I received a letter from a collection agency wanted to collect on the debt. I notified them in writing that the debt does not belong to me. But they are still sending me letter. I also further contacted them and informed them that the debt does not belong to me. I have asked them to show me the charges that they are claiming to be mine and have not had any respond back. They said that they are going to sue me. 1. Since this charge does not show up on my credit report anymore, do they have any grounds to sue me? 2. How do I get them to remove me from their list? 3. Can they put this charge back on my credit report?
